On April 29th Karl Ove Knausgaard sat down with Sheila Heti to discuss My Struggle and much more at the Chicago Humanities Festival. Watch the whole conversation here.
The fifth book of Karl Ove Knausgaard’s My Struggle gets a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly:
“The narrative, like the protagonist, strikes an impressive balance between the interior and exterior, as well as the cerebral and emotional; snappy and amusing episodes coexist alongside weighty, meditative, and essayistic passages on art and literature… Those who have come this far in the series will not be disappointed by book five; it is a pleasure to witness the gradual emergence of a dedicated artist over the course of a decade.”
Read the rest of the review here. My Struggle: Book Five arrives April 19th.
